I think that's your best bet. Try googling, or maybe go to a body shop and ask about it.


Hmmmm, in this day and age, might be liability concerns about the seat belts and air bags?

Yes, but he hasn't answered the inverse question posed by samclem - what if you could take it even earlier than 62, with further decreases? When would you take it?
